Window 5 surprised me with…

A Smoky Black Eye Definer

There’s usually not many make up products in the calendars. So this was really nice.
It’s an eyeliner that is supposedly long lasting and waterproof (according to the website).
I’m looking forward to trying this since my most used look when I go out is smoky eyes.

Orange lips

For valentines day I got an orange lipstick and a lipgloss with gold shimmer in it. I wanted orange lips since my eye makeup and my nails were a deep purple and orange complement that.

image

The lipstick is Electric Orange from Maybelline Color Sensational.
The lipgloss is the Peach one from The Body Shop.

image

I wanted the gold shimmers in the gloss because I had gold details that night, but I’ll use this gloss a lot, it smells divine! I like this kind of application too.
The lipstick feels nice and sat pretty good during the night. Nice sturdy packaging.

image

Here’s a swatch of the lipstick, lipgloss and the lipstick with the gloss over it.

I hope I’ll use this more now during the spring and summer.

Coconut lip gloss

I’ve only tried one of the lip glosses from the body shop, but not one of these.
I’ve mentioned before that coconut isn’t my favorite of the scent the body shop have, but in a gloss I think I can seal with it.
The gloss is a light shimmery pink with a standard angled applicator tip. For me the applicator is a plus since I don’t like the brush ones, they feel really unhygienic. The doefoot applicator feels more hygienic than this one though since it’s actually washable.

Thus gloss us moisturising with for me is a huge bonus.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’d notice I rarely use gloss, but after trying thus one I’ll try to make a post with glosses I’ve used.

Christmas Gala

I was at a gala tonight with work. Here’s how I looked.
I chose to focus this post on the hair since the makeup is pretty basic. The hair pictures are taken when I got home, after I removed my makeup (now).

The make up was a silver smokey eyes and red lips.

Thanks to my lodger for help with the hair and my friends/fiancé for help with the pictures. Couldn’t have done this post without you all.

I bought a highlighter and a bronzer the other day. Thought I’d show them here.

Smeared out.

I like these, the bronzer works great for shading. The highlighter is actually the furst highlighter I’ve ever hade, but I’ve liked it the det times I tried it.
I’ll try them more before writing a larger review.
